The St Ralph Sherwin Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If successful for this position, you will be expected to apply for a disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service before appointment is confirmed. References will be sought on shortlisted candidates before interview.
At BRS every member of staff is committed to the pursuit of excellence as educators and uses high quality feedback to continually improve. Through regular and deliberate practice and bespoke CPD, every member of staff is empowered to teach and lead so we help all students to fulfil their potential.
All teachers engage in weekly CPD boosts. We are proud of the support and CPD opportunities available for new staff and ECTs. We have an intensive induction programme to ensure teachers are confident with our routines for learning and our key systems and structures. We want new staff to feel part of the BRS community so all new members of staff have a staffroom buddy outside of their department. ECTs are further supported with a mentor and have weekly meetings. They also attend ECT CPD and Trust ECT CPD. After the completion of the ECT period, as RQTs, teachers attend Trust CPD so they are further supported in their professional development. Additionally, we want all teachers to fulfil their potential no matter what their career stage and we encourage teachers to attend external CPD courses and Trust CPD. To develop leadership and management, teachers may complete the NPQML / NPQSL or take part in one of the programmes through Ambition School Leadership. Teachers may also wish to complete a Masters or take part in conferences and courses through John Taylor Research School.
We very much see development as a journey not a destination. We strongly agree with Dylan Wiliam that everyone can get better regardless of their prior experience or starting point, and because everyone can get better, as educators we have a moral imperative to get better. As Wiliam states, “All teachers need to improve their practice—not because they are not good enough, but because they can be better.”
